Maybelline ClearSmooth All in One Shine Free Cake Powder

Hi guys ! Hope your having a great week so far. Mine has been super busy , but no complaining.  

Today I will be sharing my thoughts on the Maybelline Clear Smooth All in One Cake Free Powder. I'm in the shade Light (the lightest colour .. ) but there are 9 shades in the range.. 

The new Clear Smooth All in One Cake Free Powder does the following :

  • Controls Shine
  • Conceals flaws
  • Smoothes
  • Even
  • Mattifies
  • Perfect tone
  • SPF 25

'
So let me share my thoughts on this powder :
First off... I love the size of this little set. Its about the same size as my phone , so this will make it super easy to pop into your office bag or hand clutch . It also had a decent size mirror ... Which makes this very handy for a quick touch up during the day . I also like that this comes with an applicator sponge ... Although you can still use your normal face powder brush too. 

Secondly ... I like the fact that this powder has an SPF 25 too ... I love to know the products I use has an SPF in .. You can never be too careful ... And I'm one of those people that ALWAYS wears sunscreen . So this is a huge bonus for me.

Thirdly... I have to say I love how this helped keep my skin matte. I have combination skin, but my T-zone gets oily in the summer... So this really helps to keep my skin shine free during the day . 

Would I buy this when mine is finished ?? 
YES !! I love the convience of it being small enough to pop into my bag, and having the applicator sponge and mirror right there too. I did find it worked great but didn't clog my pores at all . The powder also doesn't give you a heavy "I'm wearing powder" feel on your face , making it perfect for everyone. 

These powders retails for R79,95 at Maybelline stands .

How has YOUR week been so far ??

  2. That sounds really great! I wish we had this in the US; I actually went to their website to see if it's sold here, but it isn't. The pink compact caught my attention; more makeup should come in pink packages. ;-)

    1. O wow sounds real fun times ahead for you my friend. I have to agree, I'm one of those people that will wear sunscreen every single day, as I do play outside with Alex and think sun protection is really important.
